Abstract

This volume focuses on a variety of in silico protocols of the latest bioinformatics tools and computational pipelines developed for neo-antigen identification and immune cell analysis from high-throughput sequencing data for cancer immunotherapy. The chapters in this book cover topics that discuss the two emerging concepts in recognition of tumor cells using endogenous T cells: cancer vaccines against neo-antigens presented on HLA class I and II alleles, and checkpoint inhibitors. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and authoritative, Bioinformatics for Cancer Immunotherapy: Methods and Protocols is a valuable research tool for any scientist and researcher interested in learning more about this exciting and developing field.
